It was nine years that a japanese machine had not been in the head of the Top 500, the ranking of the most powerful computers in the world. It is now the case, at least until China or the United States, who compete usually the first place, the him to resume.see also : supercomputers european hacked to produce cryptomonnaies
His little name, Fugaku, is also the one given at mount Fuji, which overlooks Tokyo. This supercomputer, developed jointly by the research institute Riken and Fujitsu for $ 1 billion, dominates, her, him, all of its competitors. Based on ARM chips, it is almost three times faster than the system Summit manufactured by the American IBM, its closest rival. Its power 15,53 petaflop barrier enables him to calculate to a speed of 415 million billion operations per second.The machine, which did not fully enter into service next year, will also predict the weather with unprecedented accuracy
This race for power is motivated by applications that allow these machines, which, like the first computers, occupying whole rooms. This "superpower" in particular allows you to discover new molecules, a crucial step in pharmaceutical research. This is also the fight against the Covid-19, which occupied Fugaku up to the present, with simulations of the spread of the virus. But the machine, which did not fully enter into service next year, will also predict the weather with unprecedented accuracy and will participate in the development of clean energy, says his creator.The editorial team conseilleLa China became the first power computing mondeSujetsJaponIBMSupercalculateuraucun comment
